Character Name: “Rocket” Red Panda
Character LJ (if applicable):
Physical description (face, build, weight): Red is an anthropomorphic red panda, standing approximately three and a half feet tall (four feet long total with tail).
Age: 2 (equivalent to his late teens)
Birthday: Equivalent to June 14
Abilities: Red possesses an enhanced sense of smell and hearing. He possesses an almost innate talent for understanding weapons and technology. If it shoots or goes boom, he can figure it out. He also makes use of a rocket-powered hoverboard. He’s quite good at climbing and getting into small spaces, as well as holding guns significantly bigger than he is.
Weaknesses and flaws: Red is small and relatively vulnerable compared to the other Guardians. He is extremely impulsive.
Character location/Home: Halfworld, Space
Alignment (villain, hero etc): Hero
Relatives (living/dead?): N/A
Backstory: Red is a native of the planet Halfworld, whose genetically altered animal inhabitants serve as the caretakers for the patients there. Red’s life was fairly normal, in as much as the word can be applied there, and he eventually entered training to become a protector for the colony. He showed an especial proficiency with weapons (although he also blew himself up a few times).
Seeing that his… enthusiasm was a bit much for their little world, the planetary council arranged to have him shipped off planet, ostensibly for “training” but really to get him off the planet before he accidentally blew them all up tinker with bombs or something of the like.
Red is not a bad person, by any stretch of the imagination. He’s just overly friendly, extremely enthusiastic, and perhaps has just a bit of an ego as well. A great guy, but one most people can only handle in extremely small does.
From there, he’s bounced from place to place, settling down just long enough to hook up with the new generation of the Guardians of the Galaxy.
How do you plan to introduce the character to the game?: However the Guardians of the Galaxy form.
What are you planning to do with this character?: Space stuff.
What do you want to see happen with this character?: Rocket Red Panda is definitely more a supportive, not-quite comedy relief type. I liken him to the absolute over the top enthusiasm of the new Rocket Red in JL: Generation Lost or a less megalomanial Invader Zim.
